frown It nearly bought tears to my eyes

Tonight on the news there was a high speed police chase where a 16yo boy stole a brand new xr8 ute from a servo i think it was, and crashed it into a tram. They had footage of the thing actually colliding with the tram and damn...... that really tore me up........... cant imagine what the owner must be going through. The ute held up really well by the looks of it........just goes to show built ford tough.....lol and i felt sorry for the boys in blue tryin to chase it down in their executive and ss commodores!!!!!!!

If only i could get my hands on the bastard who stole it

did anyone else see it?

Was the car written off? I too will watch the late news (as I do every night anyway) especially to see this.

Re: It nearly bought tears to my eyes

No major damage although the car was stolen from a service station, allegedly with the keys left in it my the owner, ....I hope this part is wrong because his insurance company will not like his "making it easy' to steal his XR ute.

Re: It nearly bought tears to my eyes

By the looks of things no one got hurt all though there was a few close calls. Geez some people are so stupid, it could have been alot worse the middle of a busy city, a high powered car with an inexperienced driver full of adrenaline.....things coulda got nasty

sorry i don't agree, so its ok for me to come and steal ur car cause u will get another one?? no wonder this country is going down the shitter. He should be punished severly. Insurance premiums are high enough as it is without fu&ktarts like this kid going out stealing the car....I feel sorry for the poor owner!!
